Johnny Manziel at #1 or Johnny Manziel outside of the first round. It all depends on who you talk with or which “draft expert” you follow. All I know is that I’ve never seen a player leading up to a draft that has caused such a split on where they believe he’ll go. Some say he’ll get killed in the NFL and that his style is too unpredictable while others point to that quality as to why he’ll succeed. Sports Illustrated this week will feature him on their cover and try to dive into what makes Manziel such a unique player. One thing is for certain though about Manziel. Wherever he goes the media circus is sure to follow along with a national spotlight. This year’s draft is going to be interesting to say the least. Much in part to Johnny Football.

Look up golf trophies on the web and you’re going to find exactly what you’d expect. Gaudy, plastic, piece of junk golf trophies with tiny gold painted figures on top that are made in China. Until now. I was out to change that when I sculpted the Mulligan golf trophy. The Mulligan was different than my other trophies because I wasn’t sculpting it with solely fantasy sports in mind. Even though there are fantasy golf fans, I knew that this golf trophy needed to cross over into the world of real sports leagues and golf tournaments. Guys would email me saying that they wanted a cool golf trophy to represent their family outing or a yearly tournament at work or with friends. Keeping that in mind, I grabbed some clay and got to work. With every design I first start by asking myself, “What would I want to play for?” From there I feel it’s a lot easier to achieve something that other sports fans would be thrilled to have. After several weeks the Mulligan was finished and I introduced it to the public. He’s gotten rave reviews from fans of FantasyTrophies.com and I can’t tell you how exciting it is when a guy says it’s the perfect trophy to represent his golf tournament, league, or even a hole in one.
See for yourself and tell me what you think.
